Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Coins are moving quickly. Their first-day sales combined to 296,311 coins, according to United States Mint spokesman Michael White. Add in another 49,825 coins for the companion Kennedy Enhanced Reverse Proof Half Dollar.
Nearly half of the allotted gold coins are already gone and just over half of the five-ounce silver coins have been claimed. Altogether so far, the collection of coins has realized over $31.8 million.
Released Thursday, product options include proof and uncirculated editions of $5 gold coins, silver dollars, and clad half-dollars as well as a proof 5-ounce $1 silver coin. There’s also a limited-edition set containing a proof Apollo 11 half-dollar and the previously mentioned enhanced reverse proof Kennedy 50c.
All but the half-dollars had initial household order limits. Those limits were lifted today at noon EST, meaning collectors and dealers can now buy as many coins as they want until and unless their mintage limits are reached.
